SUFFOCATEDA vehicle crammed with dozens of dead Chinese immigrants is found in southern Texas. Forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell must put aside her horror and find out why.

Detective Li Yan--an even more unwelcome memory for Campbell--has arrived stateside to investigate a link in the case to a lucrative trade in illegal laborers.

Li and Campbell will soon find that the crime scene hides another secret: a biological time bomb linking traffickers, politicians, and migrants in Beijing, Washington, and Texas--posing multiple countries one very singular threat.

About the Author

Peter May has written several standalone novels and three series: the critically acclaimed Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo Macleod, set in France; the Lewis Trilogy (The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man, and The Chessman), all three volumes of which were internationally bestselling novels; and the award-winning China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell.

One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, May garnered more than 1,000 credits over a decade and a half spent as scriptwriter and editor on prime-time British television. Before quitting TV to concentrate on writing novels, he was the creator of three major series, two of which were the highest rated in Scotland. May lives and writes in France.
